    I only like it as a last name. Is it a family name?

    Not really, it sounds girly like Kaylee/Hayley, and I don’t even like it for a girl that much. I’ve just known too many dogs with that name! Sorry to be negative nancy. I also think that when he tells people his name, people might mistake him for saying “Billy”

    @bebero:  LOL.

    @linnylou_88:   For me, Bailey sounds more like a girl’s name, but that is just my personal opinion.

    By the way, I like many Old Testament/Hebrew names. 🙂

    I know too many little girls with this name.

    IMO… once a name becomes unisex or gender neutral… it becomes a girl name.

    I like the name for a boy. I know a boy with the name Bailey. It’s actually his middle name, but he prefers to go by that over his first name (which is a more generic name like Nicholas or Matthew or something).

    I think of my friend’s female golden retriever.

    I’m not a fan in general for either sex, but I knew a girl Bailey growing up.

    In au it’s quite common for boys and it certainly wouldn’t raise any eyebrows. I quite like it. 🙂

    I knew some brothers from high school named Bailey and Brady. I don’t think it sounds “girly” and even if it did- why does that matter?? Its ok for girls to have “masculine” names why not other way around?
